Introducing the Little Lady Jacklin {Newborn Portraits San Diego}

It doesn’t get much better than having a job that involves traveling to Big Bear and spending the day hiking! The Jacklins wanted to capture the majesty of the lake in their maternity photos, and mom-to-be hiked all over with only one month to go before the baby arrived!! It may have been more of a journey than she expected, but the setting was a perfect backdrop for this couple’s style.

Not having a name quite yet during our session, baby girl-to-be was fondly called Lady Jacklin, which just makes me smile! I finally got to meet little Elisa Ann, who arrived fashionably late, but I’m sure you would agree that she was worth waiting for!  Shot after beautiful shot, she was an absolute peach at her first photo session.  Marie emailed me shortly after the session and said, “Lord’s hand was in that photo session as she has been quite fussy since and she was absolutely perfect then!!”

Dreaming of a Little Daswani {Maternity Pet Portraits San Diego}

Everything about this photo shoot, from the joy in these soon-to-be first time parents’ expressions to the light shining in Ramya’s hair to the sweet little fence by the sea made my heart happy. And look at that 115-pound bundle of energetic fur who got to tag along – he was delightful! (Even when he wanted nothing more than to jump in that gorgeous watery background! I’m a huge rescue dog advocate with two of my own, and this guy sure touched the sweet spot I harbor for all of our four-legged friends:) ).

Above all, the love is what makes photographing these moments so special. Not having to stage or direct a thing, I was blessed to capture the royal treatment this little one gets during nightly story time and daily infusions of belly affection, which makes me look forward to witnessing the welcome home in November even more.

Welcome Sweet Baby Alana <3 {Newborn Portraits San Diego}

Capturing this family’s connection and personal style was a joy. Meaningful details filled this photo shoot from the use of Ron’s treasured surfboards and the family’s handmade blankets to the homage to their engagement photos incorporating the hooray banner. I loved every stylish detail of their wedding and they didn’t disappoint when it came to nursery decorating! Little Alana can sleep soundly in her adorable multipurpose nursery/surfboard storage room. And speaking of that little one – after a brief warm up period, Alana was a natural and even started posing for us. Check out that eye contact in the 5th picture :)!
